at senator specter's career, peter? >> and harris, senator specter served for 30 years in the u.s. senate from 1980 until 2010. first as a democrat and then as a republican and then as a democrat again. right around the time that president obama needed the votes that he could get to pass his health care law and only one of three republicans in congress who voted for president obama's stimulus package and over the three decades in the u.s. senate was involved in 13 supreme court confirmation hearings. before coming to washington, the kansas native worked in philadelphia and part of the warren commission and investigation that a single shot passed through the president and governor conley, and purported the claims that lee harvey oswald acted alone. he was the longest serving senator, who said his former opponent helped save his daughter's life. >> my daughter had been struck with a brain cancer and-- a pretty tough one and children's hospital decided that she was to be placed on a study that was being done. hadn't been approved for common usage, it's chemotherapy using stem cells and she s
between senator john mccain and senator debate betweenthe senator john mccain and senator barack obama. >> c-span brings a special perspective into what is happening in washington, particularly your coverage of the house and the senate. if something is going on in the house and the senate -- and something will go on in the next five years. maybe not this year -- c-span coverage this authoritatively, very well and it is one of the major new sources in washington. we are all struggling with what is point to happen with health care. c-span was the board data was covering what is happening with health care. c-span is the authority of boys in terms of what the -- voice about what we congress is doing. >> c-span, created in 1979 and brought to you as a public service. >> this government has promised, has maintained the closest surveillance of the soviet military buildup on the island of cuba. within the past week, unmistakable evidence has established the fact that a series of offensive missile sites is now in preparation on that imprisoned island. the purpose of these bases can be none othe
we're going to cover until the election day. they backed then senator obama by double digits four years ago. now women voters are evenly split on the president and mitt romney. erasing an 18-point lead that the presidt had just last month. maria cardona is in washington, or as i like to call her, mcdmc. republican strategist and cnn contributor in new york is ana navaro there. >> i like what l.c. calls me, the solution. >> that's right. we came up with that. >> can we believe the numbers? how is this going to shape tonight's vice presidential debate if anybody is putting stock in these numbers? >> i think the movement clearly come comes from the bounce that mitt romney enjoyed from his performance last week. the question, is it sustainable? look, there's no question that there was nowhere to go but up for mitt romney. because the gap was so big. the question is going into tonight's debate, will it hold? and that's going to be a big question. and i'm going to say probably not. because mitt romney gave us a big opening, even just yesterday where he continued to, i would say flip flo
was beating the heck out of barack obama and the positions barack obama had taken as a senator all those years, and then the minute he was chosen for the vp nomination on the democrat ticket, joe biden all of a sudden said that barack obama then was the smartest boy in the room and that he was walking on water. and i so wanted to understand what all the flip-flops were and the positions that he had taken then going from senator to vp nominee. i hope that paul ryan gets to coax that out of him because it's very important for the electorate to understand how politicians can change their minds, tear policies, their principles -- their policies, their principles, their foundational substance so quickly according to politics, not principle. megyn: do you think that either of these men will be nervous tonight? joe biden's had some 18 debates under his belt just in the recent election cycles because, of course, he was running for the democratic nomination, didn't get it, lost to barack obama, but had a lot of debates on the democratic side, and paul ryan, he's a seven-term congressman, but this is re

becoming much more crucial. what did it do for the race between romney and obama? >> i think -- first of all, i think each guy did what they had to do. paul ryan, this is his first big national moment. he was 2 years old when biden became a u.s. senator. biden has had a lifetime to be a national figure. last night in 90 minutes, paul ryan, much more than just the nomination, he began somebody -- your own poll showed people thought he was knowledgeable, competent, capable. so ryan is doing better. biden was quintessentially biden. in 2008 in his famous debate with palin, he says come with me to restaurant in wimgton wilmington. it had been closed 20 years earlier. biden was so wrong on benghazi last night it will haunt them till the next debate. >> ryan accused biden, said it took the president two weeks to acknowledge this was a terrorist attack. the president did say right after the attack that it was an act of terror. and then biden said we weren't told they wanted more security there. we did not know they wanted more security. as jan pointed out, we've had house
, the house is projected to stay republican. and the senate is projected to stay democrat. and it looks like president obama has got an edge in the polls. so we're going to probably have a re-hash of the status quo, and i don't see how anything will get solved, actually. >> deep sigh, thank you so much, johnathan strong of "roll call". >>> and president obama is showed with an overwhelming lead with the latino voters, in fact, 78% say they would vote for him if it was held today. the state only has six electoral votes, but 76% of people identifying as latino, it could be a window into the november results. joining me is john ralston, host of "ralston reports." so that is a big number, what do you think of president obama's support among the latino voters. >> well, i think there are a couple of things going on, the exit polls in nevada showed that barack obama won, but i think mitt romney got himself in trouble with the latino community with the positions he took running to the right in that primary. and now, that is hurting him here in nevada. also, you have to -- realize that the democrats
in the first round. >> the press secretary for the obama campaign told me earlier that john kerry, the senator from massachusetts will continue to play mitt romney in those boot camp debate rehearsals as they say. all right, dan, thanks very much. let's get to the republican ticket right now, you might say that mitt romney is riding paul ryan's coat tails. they're in ohio, a must win swing state. jim acosta is on the scene for us. >> reporter: that's right, machinery and paul ryan will be out here in the town square in just a few moments, they reunited about an hour ago at the columbus airport, and according to reporters that witnessed this, they exchanged a bro hug, and he said way to go. even though paul ryan says he didn't see it coming, i talked to a lot of strategists last night who say they were not expecting joe bidens repeated interjections and laugh out loud performance he delivered, but the debate has not just been about style, it has been about substan substance, and most notably, the subject of libya. >> at breakfast, paul ryan still had his sunny side up. >> no, it's what i expect
't get to the senate, so he didn't try again. so president obama said he cares about campaign finance regulation has actually done very little. >> i walk in off stage better get your response. >> with got to keep this out of respect for the audience of a lot more questions. >> the mere fact the crew think something violates the law doesn't mean that it does. the fcc is the agency, the enforcement agents do with presidential employees that determines what the regulations are and when something violates the law. anybody can file a complaint with the fec. that doesn't mean someone violated the law and i hope we are all glad that is the case. it's what the plaintiffs in a judge will force the law because he was against me. the fec does not deadlock frequently. it does about three or 4% of the time. it virtually never comes up. we can go on and on and on and on almost every point. melanie, frankly don't have a clue as to what goes on. that's the fact. you don't know which are talking about. >> i would refer not to go down the road because there are more questions. >> i feel like there was
't need to answer that right now. you have a president who had every single democrat in the senate vote against his budget. to say romney has to be the bigger standard than obama. >> obama put up a plan. >> we have to end this here. you certainly make tonight more interesting. >> absolutely. the debate continues. nice to see both of you. >>> and we want to go now to an update i should say of that girl whose become a hero around the world. this 14-year-old girl shot by the pakistani taliban for speaking out against them. a source inside pakistan's intelligence community tells that two people including an important suspect are now in custody. the source would not say if either of them is the gunman. elizabeth palmer is reporting from islamabad. >> reporter: malala yousufzai is still unconscious, she's on a ventilator in a military hospital near islamabad. but a family friend scribes a brain scan is offering a ray of hope. a single bullet entered her head but only grazed her brain and lodged in her chest cavity. doctors did surgery to relieve the appreciate. the next 36 hours are critical
president obama is in williamsburg virginia tonight. he is also preparing to face governor romney on tuesday night. part of his practice includes mock exchanges with massachusetts senator john kerry who is playing the role of governor romney. chief white house correspondent ed henry is traveling with the the president. it sounded like some democrats think the vice president did a better job in his debate than the president. >> reporter: no doubt about it, harris. and there is fear in the obama camp that they are running out of time to sort of change the narrative on all of that. they are still confident the president can turn that momentum around. and you are right, vice president biden got some rave reviews from democrats in terms of making the case for the president's policies. the president is now holed up here at the kings mill resort in williamsburg virginia. it is a battleground state and enables him to sort of keep his name out here and get local media coverage in the critical state of virginia but also he is sort of holed up trying to make sure that he does the homework and gets read
obama. not just republicans doing it back then, remember, it was democrats like joe biden who were saying he was going to be tested. he was a young senator. didn't have a lot of experience. they obviously believe in chicago, the president has been tested and passed the test, shep. >> shep: and that attack on the consulate in libya clearly put the president, at least to some degree on defense. >> no doubt about it. if you look at our polling in recent weeks, for example, on the question of who do you trust more to handle foreign policy? the president had a small dip. 352% say they trust him more. 41% would trust mitt romney. that's down for the president from 54% back in september. so clearly that terrorist attack in benghazi has had some effect. that is why mitt romney sees an opening here. he's trying to pounce on it. but the bottom line is even with that dip, the president has a double digit lead over romney in terms of foreign policy handling. >> ed henry live with us. thanks very much. next up, the running mates, vice president joe biden and congressman paul ryan set to face of

senator joe manchin. welcome to both of you. what do you think did president obama just throw away the election, throw in the towel? >> no, you've got to love this business. a few weeks ago it was the owe owe president obama was skating to victory, there was nothing that was going to stop him and governor romney was dead and his political fortunes were over. in the split of a second it is almost the opposite. there are four weeks to go, there are still a lot of campaigning to do, critical debates have to happen. the president did not have a good debate, i think that is self-evident. moving on i think you have two key debates and the vice presidental debate that will be really critical. how each candidate performs in those debates will have an incredible significance in who wins the president. he's got to come in especially in his first debate, the president, in the town hall and hold governor romney's feet to the fire about his policies, hess facts and make him explain his contradictions and how his policies will not work. jon: chris he says that you've got to love this business --
. >> reporter: good morning. you know barack obama was not the only candidate for president to have a bad debate experience. in that first debate between john ken dean nixon, nixon despite his years in the senate and his time as vice president came off more poorly on tv than the less experienced kennedy and a new tape showed that poor performance lingered with nixon for years to come. >> would be difficult to cover it in 2 1/2 minutes. >> this is the debate that richard nixon couldn't live down. >> which party do we want to lead the united states. mr. nixon do you want to comment on that statement? >> have no comment. >> going head-to-head with john kennedy in 1960, nixoning looked uncomfortable compared to a relaxed kennedy. nixon lamented that performance in a candid conversation with his white house chief of staff. >> remember, even on the first debate. we made the mistake of not -- for that one. well, or -- we got prepared. worked like hell. >> but you didn't have time -- >> nixon never made that mistake again not when he ran in 1968. >> nixon didn't want to debate in '68 because he had the
jumped out of my seat and was satisfied with this whole debate. if obama loses, it was because he didn't kick congress in their ass every day of this campaign. i watched the debate in 2004 and the president of the senate got after john edwards about -- if he would have did that, whoo! it would have been over. >> bill: yeah. i loved that -- when he pointed out that one of the reasons -- when joe biden pointed out that one of the reasons we're in this mess is this guy right alongside of me voted for two wars and put it on a credit card. he nailed paul ryan on that one. good job joe. more calls coming up. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." ♪ >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." >> bill: oh, boy. 33 minutes after the hour now. friday morning. all right glad to see this weekend come, any weekend come actually, and we have lots to celebrate this morning before get into the weekend here on the "full court press." good to have you with us. we'll get back to your calls about last night's debate. boy martha raddatz gets a lot of praise compared to jim lehrer.

know, he called obama rational a few nights ago. to univision, president barack obama in a spanish language interview said, we do not see anything that venezuela is doing against the u.s. national interest. that goes against what republicans, including senator marco rubio, has said clearly and loudly. venezuela supports syria. venezuela supports iran. they could, in fact, be supporting hezbollah here in the country, although there isn't any concrete proof of that. those people, the republicans are saying, look, pay attention to venezuela. we need to understand what they're doing in this hemisph e hemisphere. >> paula newton, thanks very much. >>> a notorious self-confessed killer reportedly about to become a father behind bars. we have details on that and a lot more news coming up here in "the situation room." in keeping the denture clean. dentures are very different to real teeth. they're about 10 times softer and may have surface pores where bacteria can multiply. polident is designed to clean dentures daily. its unique micro-clean formula kills 99.9% of odor causing bacteria an
republican senators. it started as the gang of six. this was a group that was frustrated two years ago when the bipartisan national fiscal commission, the commission that congress established and president obama signed into law to deal with the nation's rising debt load -- the fiscal commission not, came up with a plan, and it essentially went nowhere because they did not get enough votes from the panel to spark the next stage with these legislative actions. so, a group of six senators started meeting privately, sometimes in secret, to try to see if there was something big to do with this framework. these are very big political and policy decisions. they are very complex. they take a lot of political will at a time when congress does not seem to have that kind of will. these six, perhaps they could come up with something. they have been meeting for two years. they added two members. we could go through the list. the republican side -- senator sexy chambliss, senator mike crapo, -- senator chambliss, senator mike crapo, tom coburn of oklahoma, and and and the democratic side is mark warner,
into that category. the people who voted for obama last time who will vote for romney this time, those people are not that hard to find. host: he used to work at the washington post. he covered the political rise of senator john and works and his political aspirations. he worked for the detroit news for six years. comments are coming in about the comments mitt romney made to the register about abortion. one says it was a generous assessment. others would have said he lied. no abortion legislation should be. news for those liberals concerned they would be made illegal. is he demoting some who will not come out on election day? guest: his connection to them is tenuous. in his view has evolved 180 degrees for 1 u.s. governor of massachusetts. i think there is something else going on. president obama has managed to alienate those voters. it reminds me of one president clinton was running for reelection. i am telling my kids you are not supposed to use this word, but they hated him. it blinded them. . they won't up making some decisions. bob dole campaign was hexed from the start. -- they wound up
at how he governed, obama care didn't get a single republic vote. when the republicans put something on the table. it doesn't even get brought up to be voted on by the senate. it is a very partisan atmosphere and i do think it's worse and it is different. you were out on the campaign trail. george bush vs. john kerry. it seems like it was very polarized. >> 80% to 5. new poll president obama says 90%. 80% to 90%. still polarizing. what's different this time you? were around during bill clinton bob doll years. -- dole years. >> this is where the funnel starts. everybody gets really hard core. republicans get an adamant. democrats get adamant about theirs. don't hate each other. what i am sensing now intensity i have not seen before. a lot of it is red because i'm a republic. i'm not objective and not pretending to be objective. i do think that the president has pushed buttons of the republicans in a way that i have not seen other presidents including presidents like bill clinton do. that's why one reason bill clinton has a successful post presidency. people can look back and say you k
